Successful photo shoots are a team sport. Although I do photo shoots as solo photographer/stylist collaborating with the models/riders and horse owners; we can do so much more with a team. I am always on the lookout for team members in the various areas that I travel to often or perhaps just a place I go to once.
Where do I go often?
Wellington, Florida USA and surrounding areas. This is home base since I live in Boca Raton.
Ocala, Florida USA and surrounding areas.
Boyce, Virginia USA (greater Washington DC area)
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and surrounding areas.
Assistants are invaluable for these intricate photo shoots. Although I do in-studio and outdoor flash photography; most of my photo shoots are natural light outdoors. Assistants should be comfortable and kind with horses and pleasant working with people. Carrying and/or setting up equipment, using reflectors and diffusers, help with changes in posing and styling, adding or removing props, getting horses ears up and helping reposition the horses are just some of the skills I am looking for in assistants. Plenty of opportunity to learn all aspects of styling, photography and postprocessing as well as improve your horse handling skills. Sign up and get on my list.
